2. A son of Deucalion, and father of Meriones. (Hom. Il. 10.269, 13.279; Apollod. 3.3.1; Diod. 5.79; Hygin. Fub. 97; comp. MERIONES.) According to a Cretan legend, he was a son of Minos, and a brother of Deucalion (Diod. l.c.); and it was said, that as he had attempted to violate a nymph, he was afterwards found without a head; for at a certain festival in Crete they showed the image of a man without a head, who was called Molus. (Plut. De Def. Orac. 13.)
